[ Watch The Video: Morphing Material With Great Potential ] Rice University Heating a sheet of plastic may not bring it to life – but it sure looks like it does in new experiments at Rice University. The materials created by Rice polymer scientist Rafael Verduzco and his colleagues start as flat slabs, but they morph into shapes that can be controlled by patterns written into their layers. The research is the subject of a new paper in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal...

A new way to create safer nanotechnology apparatus has been patented by Contipro Biotech. (PRWEB) November 29, 2013 High-voltage nanofibre production, using very high voltages of up to 120,000 volts, is a principle that has been known for a long time. Naturally, there is inherently a high risk of injury if equipment operators handle the high voltage electrodes or created nano-material before the residual surface charge has been safely discharged. Until now, hand-operated external grounded...
